I hadn’t planned on making pancakes that morning which is not surprising. I don’t make them often, because of the carbohydrates, and the there are lots of them. This means that there will be uninvited sugar from the carbs. It can’t be helped.
Pretending and Piece of Mind
However, every few months, I depart from these strict rules and make my own from scratch. I make sure that an egg is on my plate, to provide some protein, after the pancake is no longer. I am not sure that really compensates for the sugar, but I like to pretend that it does. Pretending and piece of mind are a good combination for both the body and the mind!
Normally I would use cinnamon and/or nutmeg to naturally sweeten the pancakes. For some reason, unbeknownst to me, I opened the refrigerator and took out some day old farmers’ market fresh blueberries.
My mind visualized the finished product, delicious and looking like a “normal” pancake that most people are accustomed to seeing and eating. Without giving it much thought, I grabbed the ingredients that my hands reached for and put on them on the kitchen counter. It took but a few minutes and my “standardized” pancake was born. Thanks to my hands that seemed to know just what to do. The results where exactly what I had hope for, tasty pancakes that I could feel comfortable serving to anyone.
